Humboldt County Historical Society


Since 1947, the Humboldt County Historical Society has worked to preserve original historical materials related to Northern California history. Our purpose is to further an understanding and appreciation of all peoples, places, events, and activities of Humboldt County and related areas. Toward this end, we focus on acquiring, preserving, interpreting, creating, and sharing historical information, and by educating and assisting others to do the same.

The Historical Society archives contain photos, maps, print materials and papers that focus on the people, places and activities of Humboldt County. Unique to the Humboldt County Historical Society are over 450 collections from specific businesses, organizations and families. We also have government records and school materials covering Humboldt history from the 1850s to the present day. The items in these collections can range from business correspondence to ledger and receipt books to meeting minutes to family letters, diaries and scrapbooks.In addition to our specific collections we have a Research Library with local history books, back issues of the Humboldt Historian and general information files, a separate room dedicated to family histories and genealogy resources, a map room and a room that houses our extensive photo collection.
